    Hi all,

    Do I have an issue using a trademark logo (think like apples logo) but editing this to a different image for satirical purposes ? The image would not be exactly the same but purcahasers of my product would be able to associate this image with Trademarked image company I.e there would be some similarities.

    The purpose of the product is satirical, specifically a manipulation of the trademarked image for comedic value which could be sold on stickers / shirt etc.

    Thanks!

    From my understanding if it can easily be mistaken for a trademarked logo then you may run into problems as the trademark holder can argue it looks too similar.

    I would highly recommend speaking to a specialist solicitor regarding this as you don't want to get it wrong.
